Paramount won't use 'Section 8' name, TimeGate drops suit

We were just getting geared up for a protracted legal cat fight between developer TimeGate and movie studio Paramount over the rights to the name "Section 8" ... but the whole thing fizzled nearly before it began. If you'll remember, TimeGate claimed that it shared the name of its FPS with Paramount, which later announced it was working on an interactive property of the same name, prompting the game developer to sue the studio.

Now, Paramount has agreed to not use the name and, in turn, TimeGate has dismissed the suit. Bor-ing.
